Winning heart & minds in Parliament

Written by Brendan O'Hara MP

Last week, having spoken to constituents working at Faslane I tabled a series of very specific and detailed questions to the Ministry of Defence on what I believe could be serious Health & Safety concerns at The base.

The MoD grouped all eight of my questions together and dismissed them all in one very short answer, hiding behind the excuse of national security, despite the topic being health & safety.

I refused to accept their answer and yesterday approached The Speaker of the House of Commons about it. As you can see from this clip, Mr Speaker was very supportive.

I have now applied for a debate at Westminster as that is the only way I can see that the MoD will be forced to provide acceptable answers. Click the link below to view a video clip
